Autumn on Delancey is a quilt I made for my father-in-law Ed Hennessey. The inspiration for this quilt was playing in the huge piles of raked leaves with our son Patrick in front of the Delancey Street house in Mamaroneck NY. This fun activity made our fall vacation very special.
Made from leftovers (as usual), this scrap quilt uses the Chinese Coins pattern, and I was elated to find the scattered leaf fabric for the columns and the borders. This fabric pulled all the other fabrics together.
Nina Farrell long-arm quilted this quilt in an overall leaf pattern, using all different kinds of leaves. Click on the Detail photo to enlarge it and see the great leaves. She did wonderful work here, and Eddie loved his quilt.
